Fit great, so many compliments!
I'd discovered via RTR before this designer fits me beautifully off the rack and this dress was no exception. It was a little more conservative than I usually wear, but I got tons of compliments from my friends nonetheless. I found the lace and trim up top to be a little restrictive - was worried about putting my arms up dancing, but otherwise fine.

Prom chaperone hit!
The blue of this dress was gorgeous! It was not quite navy, but not quite royal either--I would say somewhere in between, leaning a bit more towards navy. The cut was very fitted and flattering, which is why I selected "runs small;" the waist is quite tight. I got many compliments while wearing this dress, both from other chaperones and students at the prom. The only complaint that I had was that the top eye hook clasp was continually coming undone. Overall, beautiful detailing and very unique!

Classy, unique and very sexy!!! Fits like a glove! Perfect for any formal event.
So I read the reviews and everyone was saying that it ran big in the top area and to order down in size. I found it to be opposite. Normally I am a 6 but was going to order an 8 to be safe. However, everyone said it ran large so I got a 6 and a 4. Well...I didn't even try the 4 because I could barely just get into the 6. I have a 34D chest, small rib cage/waist and large hips and big booty. I mean, once I got it zipped pasted the chest area it fit like a glove. Even though my boobs were a little smashed, I was very comfortable in it. I was planning on wearing a strapless bra that sticks on your boobs...but there was absolutely no room. Thank goodness I didn't need it. The fabric is very nice and thick so I didn't feel insecure about anything showing. Also the color I posted is not filtered and this is the true color of the dress with natural sunlight hitting it ...not dark navy. I knew that about the color based on other reviews. I felt so beautiful and multiple women came up to me and told me how stunning I looked and they loved the dress. I definitely recommend this dress for hour glass figures. I don't think it looks as stunning on straight up and down bodies. I am VERY happy with this rental.

One of my favorite RTR dresses to date! It is simply elegant. The bodice, the structure, the material, it is all so regal. Everyone fell in love with this dress and I wish to rent it again. Glamorous and elegant all summed up in this one dress!

I wore this dress for a Valentine's Day Murder Mystery Dinner, it was appropriate and matched well.
The dress fit but was definitely a little tight in all areas. I think I would have liked one size bigger since it was meant to be a fitted dress. There was a small tear in the lace and the hanger was broken when it arrived, this might have happened during shipping. The dress was appropriate for the event I wore it for, but I would not have liked it for a formal event.

The lace and the embellishments are beautiful.
I wore this for a fall wedding and at the end of the night I didn't want to take the dress off. The illusion neckline was so beautiful with the lace and beading and the fit was perfect. I ended up going with the 0, but did order a 2 as well for a backup size just in case, as I sometimes need more room in the hips. The dress was very comfortable to dance in and didn't get too hot. I would wear this dress again!

I wore this dress to the Boston Ballet and I got a lot of compliments on it. I felt beautiful in it.
The dress was beautiful. I really liked all the bead work. The fit was great, I usually wear a size 2 and the size 2 fit just perfect. I had read about the tan lining popping out at the bottom of the dress in other reviews and it did with the size 2 but not the size 4 which was my other size. It wasn't a big deal for me because the lace still covered it.

Gorgeous Dress
This is a gorgeous dress! I received lots of compliments all night. It runs a little small and the zipper was a little tricky. You will definitely need someone to assist with zipping-up. I had to go 1 size up but other than that I love everything about the dress. This is my second rental and I've been impressed both times. I will be renting again for future events.

Gorgeous dress -- ordered as back up
This dress is 100% gorgeous -- romantic and elegant. I ordered as a backup and really wanted to wear instead of the other dress. However, there was a small tear in the lace overlay in the back. I contacted rent the runway immediately and customer service handled the situation. The dress seem to run small. I wear a 2/4 and the 4 was tight between the chest & stomach...but not an uncomfortable tight. I think a 6 would have given me more peace of mind. I would definitely rent again (just a size up). It was a gorgeous color, style, length.

Stunning!
I adored this dress and wished I didn't have to send it back. I think this is my favorite dress I've ever rented from RTR. Both the 4 and the 6 fit very well but I opted for the larger size as this was a work-related formal event and I wanted it to be a bit looser. Very comfortable length. I got so many compliments on it all night long.

This dress was perfect for my son's wedding. I will definitely rent again.
I am probably between a 2 and 4 and tried to order both but only the 2 was available. With a waist minimizer, I was able to wear it comfortably and a 4 would have been too large. Between the dress and the earrings, I had a great outfit for a wonderful day.

Flattering fit-no one else had anything on like it
I wore this for my son's graduation from law school. The cocktail length was perfect for the occasion and going out to dinner after. The subtle beading and sequins added just enough bling. The color is a little richer than navy. I paired w/black pumps, sapphire earrings and chunky silver/crystal bracelets. The beaded illusion neckline made a necklace unnecessary. It fit like it was made for me

Perfect for wedding with SO's family!
Thankfully this dress runs true to size since the 4 was the only size available. it fit perfectly. There is some give so I still had some room. This dress was absolutely beautiful. I didn't understand what everyone was saying about the lining, but they were right. The lining at the bottom is 2 sided. The underside is neutral but when it shows you can see it through the lace, but I am sure I am the only one that noticed. I got a trillion compliments and apparently navy lace is very in for this wedding season so watch out if you really want to stand out. For reference I am 5'8", 145 lbs, 34A.

PERFECT dress for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party.
I loved, LOVED this dress. The size 6 fit me perfectly, I typically wear a 4-6. I received so many compliments, I didn't want the night to end! I was over the moon with my selection as well as everything with RTR, would definitely recommend.

Not bad for over 60 !
This dress fit PERFECTLY. I am 5'5" and 122 lbs. with only a 33" bust. I had tried it on in the store but didn't want to spend the money. When my back-up dress became unavailable, I chose this one, and RTR came through. KUDOS to their customer service department. I received so many compliments and still do since I recently changed this to my FB profile picture. Wore with "sticky boobs." Only downside was that the lining hung below the lace, but I pinned it up, so problem solved. I've rented 3 times and so far this is my favorite. Another one coming up in May. I love that I can have a different dress for every wedding.

Beautiful! But the nude slip showed below parts of the skirt.
I saw that another reviewer had issues with the slip, but I hoped it was a one-time thing. Unfortunately, it looks like an issue with the dress.

A perfect dress for an elegant office holiday party!
I loved the dress and received many compliments. It runs a bit small, so I wore the backup size 6. Size 4 felt snug around the tummy when I sat down. I am 5' 0", and the dress fell at the calf level, working well as a tea-length dress. RTR also offers this in mustard color (my first choice), but it wasn't available in my size. I like this dress enough to rent the other color next time!

I could not wear this dress!
I could not get the zipper up! Even on the hangar, it stuck rather badly, and dressing solo, I could not manage it. It is a beautiful dress, and if it were my own, perhaps I would have waxed the zipper or some such. What a waste!

The lace and color!
Such a beautiful dress. The length was perfect. Loved the sleeves and lace detail. No stretch at all. I really could've worn an 8 because it was a bit tight in the bust and hips... but it wasn't available. Read the reviews beforehand so I was prepared. Worn with nude heels. Definitely renting from RTR again! I love this website because it is really convenient for someone like me who does not like wearing the same thing twice to big events. My only regret is that I wish I could have bought this dress and kept it! lol

This dress was amazing. I got so many compliments on it and they couldn't believe I had rented it!
The fit was great. I was a little nervous because I have a booty from crossfit and I have more muscular arms as well. I did wear spanx with the dress just so everything stayed smooth and went on effortlessly. The color was great and it's the first time I have ever actually worn navy to an event. It was so on trend right now, yet I looked completely different then the rest of the wedding guests. I was really happy and definitely will be renting again!

This dress fit perfectly. It hugged my curves without being tight or constricting. But it was also elegant and classy for a high-end benefit in New York. I felt great wearing it.
